Hi guys,

I'm French so i will try to explain correctly the problem.

Actually, there is a bug (?) in this version of Gnutls which disallow to
run correctly a Windows application with Wine. This application is the
Ubisoft software called "Uplay".

In fact, when you launch Uplay with Wine and try to connect you to the
application, Uplay hangs with the login screen. (See the reportbug in Wine
bugzilla here : https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38134 )

The only workaround which has been found is to compile Wine (and use it)
with the old version of Gnutls (2.12.X).

The big problem is that each Linux distribution (Fedora, Debian etc...)
have delete this version from their repository to use the new version.

It's easy to reproduce the bug :
- Install the latest wine version (from Debian Jessie/Sid, Arch or others)
- Download and install UPlay (
- Create an Uplay account and try to use it with Wine
